Six new buses have been bought by Bakers Dolphin to provide services on two routes in North Somerset.

The Weston-super-Mare business is operating the new showcase service 66, which it has branded the 66 HOPPER.

Distinctive route-branded vehicles will link Congresbury and Nailsea via Yatton, Clevedon, Portishead and Portbury and have taken over Service 121, which links Weston-super-Mare and Bristol via the A38 and Bristol Airport.

Timetables for the new services can be downloaded from the North Somerset Council website

Bakers Dolphin Managing Director Max Fletcher said of the new 66 route: "This service provides some vital links getting people around in North Somerset, from Congresbury to the railway station in Yatton; from Kenn to shops in Clevedon, Portishead and Nailsea and will help people in Portbury get into Portishead or Nailsea.

"The route will not only help people in some of the smaller communities get around by public transport but will be a benefit to businesses along the route. It will also stop at Clevedon and Gordano Schools so will provide links for some pupils.

"We also expect it to be used in the summer by those looking for a day out at Clevedon and Portishead or many other attractions in North Somerset served by this route.

"The other advantage is that we are currently hiring new drivers to service the route, offering more job opportunities in North Somerset."

Bakers Dolphin will now operate seven-days a week on the popular 121 service, which links the railway station at Weston-super-Mare to Bristol bus station with a route through Locking, Banwell, Winscombe, Sandford, Churchill, Wrington, Bristol Airport, Felton and Winford.

With up to four buses operating throughout the week the service again provides vital links for some of the smaller communities along the route.
